This review is from: Mojo (Audio CD)
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Mojo is a revelation. This Is the live sound (apparently the album was recorded live in the studio without overdubs) of TP and the band playing the most sublime sounding blues. It ranges from the opening traditional blues format of Jefferson Jericho Blues and moves next on to First Fllash Of Freedom, a track that the Grateful Dead might have recorded. Other stand outs are the brilliant story telling of The Trip To Pirate's Cove, No reason To Cry and US 41. There are however no weak tracks on the album.
The reggae influenced Don't Pull Me Over is fantastic. TP's ghostly vocals coupled with a reggae beat about hoping to avoid being caught by the police whilst carrying drugs.
This is an album that flows beautifully from start to finish and the excellent production highlights the superb musicianship including some fantastic performances from all involved especially Mike Campbell on guitar and Benmont Tench on keyboards.
Now we just need a european tour please - and soon - and long overdue.
